About

The Petroleum Association of Wyoming (PAW) and the Wyoming Contractors Association (WCA) have teamed up for many years to provide vision, resources and real solutions to the ongoing safety challenges in the heavy industry trades in Wyoming. These organizations are now joined by the Wyoming Oil and Gas Safety Alliance (WOGISA), to promote safety and health improvement for the oil and gas exploration, production, transmission and refining industries in Wyoming.

WyomingSafety.org was created through the partnership of these organizations. The site contains useful information and resources to help your company hire the safest employees, get your employees trained and engaged, and make safety a priority.

In June 2011, WOGISA and Wyoming OSHA entered into a formal written alliance providing for the establishment of a collaborative relationship to foster a safer and more healthful workplace. The signing ceremony was held in Governor Mead’s office. Signatories to the alliance were WOGISA and Wyoming OSHA with the Governor signing as a witness. The complete document is here.
